My instructor Charity Staudenraus is awesome. I have taken five or six classes from her, and she has done a wonderful job in each one. She responds to every assignment that I turned in and gives great feedback to all my questions. I'll come back to the Heritage Institute to take classes from her. She is that good.

I had no idea when first taking this course how useful the skills and platform would be in our current state of teaching and learning remotely. I am grateful for the timeliness and resourcefulness of this course.
